    • Abstract


      The synthesis of herbacetin and hibiscetin from kæmpferol and myricetin is described. As before, the partial methyl ethers of the latter have been subjected to nuclear oxidation with alkaline persulphate. The oxidation proceeds smoothly and gives rise to good yields of the products.
